As Muslims infiltrate into American politics, a veteran decided to protest after a prayer from the Quran was read before a state Senate meeting.
Muslim Prayer Read in the Senate
Dave Lawson, a military veteran and a Delaware state senator made the decision that he was not okay with this and made his thoughts publicly known.
Lawson served the United States in the Air Force and did a tour of duty in Vietnam. The patriot led a protest against the Quran reading.

He stated, “We just heard from the Quran, which calls for our very demise.
“I fought for this country, not to be damned by someone that comes in here and prays to their God for our demise.
“I think that’s despicable.”
His rebuttal was caught on video, but what was not shown was Lawson being criticized for speaking his mind.
Democrats Lash Out at Republican
The Delaware Senate President Pro Tempore in 2017, David McBride (D-New Castle) concluded the session by ripping into the veteran.
He stated, “I have never been of the mind to censure the words of other members, but I also believe deeply that words have consequences.
“To criticize the sacred prayer of another religion from the floor of the Senate strikes me as antithetical to everything we ought to stand for as lawmakers.”
McBride went on to say, “I am personally offended that our guests from the Muslim community and anyone else here in the chamber today would feel anything less than welcomed with opened arms.
“And for our guests, today to be branded as anti-American when our First Amendment of our country’s Constitution explicitly guarantees the freedom of religion is both ironic and deeply sad to me.”
When McBride stated that he was “hopeful we can move past this sad chapter in the body’s history,” Lawson told him he was “ignorant to what’s going on.”
